Dear Dr. Reich,
I found out about you and your work recently in December 2013 and have been absolutely fascinated by the research you’ve done on the subject of human sexuality. It quickly became clear to me why you were regarded as one of Dr. Freud’s most promising students. I’m truly disappointed by the fact that I didn’t come across your work much earlier, because it would have saved me a lot of time doing my own personal research in the same and related areas.
Ever since my early childhood, I’ve always had a lot of questions regarding human sexuality. I couldn’t understand the often conflicting ways in which society treated the subject. Even at such a young age it was quite obvious to me that something was terribly wrong. At the same time, I was also fascinated with women, in the same way that any healthy young boy usually is, but even more so because I could detect problems and inconsistencies in their thoughts and behavior. Back then, and still right now, there was this notion in society that women, by nature, were very difficult to understand, and that we’d never be able to figure them out. We just had to accept it and try to live with their irrationality. Even Dr. Freud was puzzled with their behavior for as long as he lived.
But it was clear to me from the very beginning that women were suffering from a mental problem; I just had no idea back then how to explain it. And being the type who wants to understand everything around me, this was just unacceptable. I promised myself to solve this puzzle in my lifetime, and I would often mention to friends and other people that I spoke to, that a time would come when I would have an answer for this mystery.
I saw over on Business Insider that Bill Gates blogged about things that he thinks made the world better in 2013. I wanted to comment on his blog post and point out what I think many may not realize. Gates pretends to be doing good around the world, and perhaps some of what he’s doing may be beneficial to some people, but overall he’s a big hypocrite. Philanthropy is all about business to Gates and those who support him.
For example, Gates blogs:
We got smarter and faster at fighting polio. You may have heard about recent polio outbreaks in Syria, Kenya, and Somalia. What you may not know is just how rapid and effective the response has been. It looks like the outbreak in the Horn of Africa was controlled in 4 months, less than half the time it took to control an outbreak there in 2005. [...] Despite the ongoing violence there and in Afghanistan—including horrifying reprisals against vaccine workers—the next couple of years are a good opportunity for us to make progress on this goal.
The polio vaccine was given to humanity for free by its inventor Jonas Salk. When asked why he didn’t patent his invention, Salk replied “There is no patent. Could you patent the sun?” Today Gates and his band of thieves are raking in billions of dollars based on a vaccine that was given to humanity for free by its inventor. The next time you meet Gates, ask him why he and the corporations he has a stake in, insist on patenting their technology and medical inventions. Why do they insist on patenting their drugs? If Gates and his supporters are such good people, then why can’t they come even close to Salk, and release their inventions for free so all of humanity can benefit from them? Gates may be fooling a lot of people worldwide, but he’s not fooling me.
Have you ever wondered how a human being develops itself out of the initial cell in the womb of the mother? More specifically, if you look at the proportions between the various organs and body parts during the growth of the embryo, you can see that every one of them grows at a different rate. In the beginning all of them are roughly the same size, but as the embryo grows, certain parts of the body get bigger compared to the rest. Even after a baby is born, the proportions between various body parts continue to change as it grows up to the point where it becomes a fully grown adult.
How does an organism “know” what the final proportions should be? How does it “know” which parts of the body should grow bigger or faster than others? According to modern science this information is probably stored in our DNA, but we’ve not yet been able to figure out exactly how it’s stored. But I think that I found an important clue related to how this information might be encoded if it’s really stored in our DNA.
I saw a story today on Business Insider claiming that Mark Zuckerberg gave away $990 million to charity. Here’s a quote:
This morning, Mark Zuckerberg announced plans to give 18 million Facebook shares to charity by the end of the month. Facebook is currently trading at $55 per share, so Zuckerberg’s gift is worth just under $1 billion.
Every time I see such a story I wonder if these people really think everyone is so stupid not to see what’s really going on here. Do you really think Zuckerberg gave away $990 million? Ask yourself, did he really give away that money to charity, when much of the money goes to his own foundations? Both the Zuckerberg foundation and the Breakthrough Prize in Life Science foundations are his.
It seems to me that this is just a way for Zuckerberg to avoid paying taxes on the part of the money he supposedly “donates” away. Just like his company Facebook finds all kinds of ways to avoid paying taxes.
What Zuckerberg is doing here isn’t unique to him; all the people in his class use the same or similar tactics to avoid taxes, including people like Bill Gates, who also has his own Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. On top of that, this is often also used as a major publicity stunt to show the world how good they supposedly are. In reality the money doesn’t go to poor people, like you would think, but is instead invested in their own companies that rake in millions of dollars in profits on the backs of the poor. It’s like I wrote in a recent post about Bill Gates:
It seems to me that Gates and other philanthropists and so called humanitarian organizations are still in this very much for the profit. This would explain why Gates doesn’t say anything about the crimes that are being committed against the people in African countries, where their resources are essentially stolen from them by big corporations that make insane amounts of profits — corporations that people like Gates have financial stakes in (watch a documentary titled “Blood Coltan” for an example). It would also explain why Gates is fighting HIV in African countries when in fact it’s known among top scientists that the whole HIV/AIDS business is a huge money making scam that’s needlessly killing thousands of people around the world.
If Gates was really concerned about these people, then instead of playing mister philanthropic nice guy and pretending to the world how good he is by seemingly “giving away” money to help them, he would start publicly telling the governments and corporations to stop exploiting the African people, and to start paying them the money they deserve — the true value of their labor and resources. Give them their fair share of all the billions of dollars corporations make from their resources. That will allow them to start getting out of poverty, to take care of themselves and as a result they won’t have to rely on handouts from people like Gates anymore who eventually get back much more money from the enslavement of these people than they “give” to them. The evidence is out there.
The same things I wrote above about Gates also apply here to Zuckerberg. If you were still in doubt about the true motives, then let Gates himself remove all doubt for you:
By the late 1990s, I had dropped the idea of starting an institute for basic research. Instead I began seeking out other areas where business and government underinvest. Together Melinda and I found a few areas that cried out for philanthropy—in particular for what I have called catalytic philanthropy.
I have been sharing my idea of catalytic philanthropy for a while now. It works a lot like the private markets: You invest for big returns. But there’s a big difference. In philanthropy, the investor doesn’t need to get any of the benefit. We take a double-pronged approach: (1) Narrow the gap so that advances for the rich world reach the poor world faster, and (2) turn more of the world’s IQ toward devising solutions to problems that only people in the poor world face. Of course, this comes with its own challenges. You’re working in a global economy worth tens of trillions of dollars, so any philanthropic effort is relatively small. If you want to have a big impact, you need a leverage point—a way to put in a dollar of funding or an hour of effort and benefit society by a hundred or a thousand times as much.
We work to draw in not just governments but also businesses, because that’s where most innovation comes from. I’ve heard some people describe the economy of the future as “post-corporatist and post-capitalist”—one in which large corporations crumble and all innovation happens from the bottom up. What nonsense. People who say things like that never have a convincing explanation for who will make drugs or low-cost carbon-free energy. Catalytic philanthropy doesn’t replace businesses. It helps more of their innovations benefit the poor.
I like how Gates says that “people who say things like that never have a convincing explanation for who will make drugs or low-cost carbon-free energy.” Obviously Gates has never heard about the story of Nikola Tesla and G. P. Morgan. If it wasn’t for money blinded corporatists like Morgan, today Tesla would have provided the whole world with not only carbon-free energy, but completely free energy that wouldn’t cost you anything.
As you can see, “catalytic philanthropy” is really just big business for these people. It’s not really about helping people out; helping people is just a byproduct of their quest to “invest for big returns.” It’s not help; it’s an investment. You have to realize and understand the difference here. And any help that does end up going to the poor is but a drop of water on the hot plate that is the systematic exploitation and enslavement of these people. It really means nothing significant for them.
People like Gates and Zuckerberg don’t fool me, and neither should they be able to fool you. Giving is really just for their own benefit, while they continue to exploit and enslave the poor everywhere around the world, either directly but more often indirectly through their governments and corporations. I look forward to the day when they will really start to do something significant for humankind by being politically incorrect and publicly questioning and trying to put an end to all the atrocities that are committed by governments and corporations against humanity everywhere around the world, without any fear of the business and personal impact it will have on them.
Ever since Nelson Mandela died yesterday, everyone is quick to pay lip service to him on the Internet, especially on social media websites, mentioning how much of a great man he was and how much they admire what he did for humankind. It makes me sick to witness such hypocritical behavior every time. If you really think Mandela was such a great man, and if you value what he did for humankind, the best way to pay a tribute to him is to at least try and walk in his footsteps. I know that won’t be easy, but if all of you hypocrites could at least manage to have even 10% of his courage, we’d be well on our way to seriously improving the world we live in.
There are so many atrocities being committed against humanity all around us, why do you continue to look away and pretend as if you see nothing? Why not speak up about it? Speaking up and sharing the information about the crimes that are being committed against humanity really is the least you could do. People don’t even have the courage to do that, afraid of being politically incorrect and afraid of what they have to lose.
Here’s another clear example of female sexual suppression in society: A sex scene featuring actress Evan Rachel Wood was cut out of the movie “Charlie Countryman” by the MPAA because apparently it showed oral sex being performed on Wood’s character while she was enjoying herself. Here’s what Wood had to say about this in a series of posts on Twitter:
After seeing the new cut of #CharlieCountryman I would like 2 share my disappointment with the MPAA, who thought it was necessary to censor a woman’s sexuality once again. The scene where the two main characters make ‘love’ was altered because someone felt that seeing a man give a woman oral sex made people ‘uncomfortable’ but the scenes in which people are murdered by having their heads blown off remained intact and unaltered.
This is a symptom of a society that wants to shame women and put them down for enjoying sex, especially when (gasp) the man isn’t getting off as well! It’s hard for me to believe that had the roles been reversed it still would have been cut. OR had the female character been raped it would have been cut. It’s time for people to GROW UP.
Accept that woman are sexual beings … Accept that some men like pleasuring women. Accept that women don’t have to just be fucked and say thank you. We are allowed and entitled to enjoy ourselves. It’s time we put our foot down …
Wood is correct in stating that this is “a symptom of a society that wants to shame women and put them down for enjoying sex.” In fact, more accurately, it’s a symptom of a society that wants to enforce (female) sexual suppression and repression on everyone.
Today everyone living in the modern world is familiar with the Apple logo. It’s one of the most popular and recognizable brands, not to mention the world’s most valued brand since 2013, having overtaken Coca-Cola and even Google who are now in the third and second place respectively, according to a study of the Top 100 brands by Interbrand:
“Every so often, a company changes our lives — not just with its products, but with its ethos,” Jez Frampton, chief executive officer at New York-based brand consultancy Interbrand, said in a statement. Current Apple CEO “Tim Cook has assembled a solid leadership team and has kept Steve Jobs’ vision intact — a vision that has allowed Apple to deliver on its promise of innovation time and time again.”
The fact that Apple has changed our lives is not an overstatement. Apple was one of the key players in the beginning when the personal computing revolution took off, bringing the power of the computer to the masses, and has been and has remained a leader when it comes to innovations in this area. This much is very obvious to almost everybody.
However, not a lot of people realize today that there’s a lot more going on in the background than is immediately obvious on the surface. It appears that Apple is just another milestone in a grander plan spanning thousands of years designed to help humankind to reach a new era of enlightenment. Depending on your level of awareness, this may sound crazy at first, but bear with me for the remainder of this article and you might be surprised. We’ve been given a rare opportunity to take a glimpse behind the scenes as the grand plan unfolds.
New York based photographer Wyatt Gallery visited Suriname for a few days to photograph some historic sites for his project “Jewish Treasures of the Caribbean.” Wyatt has done work for the New York Times in the past and his work has been published in numerous books and magazines such as Esquire and the New York Times, in addition to receiving numerous awards. This was Wyatt’s second visit to Suriname; he had been in Suriname before for the New York Times.
I attended a presentation he did for a group of local photographers yesterday, and was amazed by the work he’s doing. And it’s not just the great photography, but also the way in which he has been able to combine his photography with helping people out in various countries and raising money and awareness for good causes.
In my first note to Barack Obama I had already told him to go fuck himself in connection with his remarks on the Palestinian conflict. Recently he apparently also remarked that he’s “very good at killing people” while discussing the use of drones in counter-terrorist operations in a closed conference with his aides:
Two major military-related groups, Officers of Russia and Soldiers’ Mothers, have addressed the Nobel Committee with a request to evaluate the inhumane statements made by the US president about drone warfare.
“I would like to bring to your attention that [we] were surprised and outraged by the statement made by the Nobel Prize laureate and US President Barack Obama quoted in the book ‘Double Down’ by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann,” the head of the Officers of Russia NGO, Anton Tsvetkov, wrote in the letter to the committee, Infox.ru quoted.
“While discussing the use of drones in counter-terrorist operations in a closed conference with his aides, Barack Obama cynically noted he was ‘very good at killing people.’ In connection with this we ask you to give an official legal and moral assessment of Barack Obama’s words concerning their compatibility with the high title of the Nobel Peace Prize laureate,” he added.
Tsvetkov told reporters at a press conference in Moscow that military professionals in his organization were strongly against the use of drone aircraft in combat as this weapon often causes casualties among civilians. He claims the Officers of Russia possess information proving that Obama personally sanctioned the combat use of drones during missions in Pakistan, Yemen, Afghanistan, Somalia and other countries.
“As a mother and a Human Rights advocate, I cannot understand his drive. I cannot understand the statement by the president of a nation that he can kill people. Obama must either apologize before everybody for his statement or give the [Peace] prize back and admit that he has not yet grown up to bear this high title,” she noted.
In case you’re not aware of what kind of devastation Obama is causing in the lives of innocent people in countries in the middle east using his drones, then I highly recommend you check out the documentary “UNMANNED: America’s Drone Wars.”
When you watch this documentary and see how the lives of innocent families are being ruined, how people are being traumatized, how adults and children are being murdered, how healthy young men and women are left badly injured and disabled for life after a drone strike, then compare that to the above picture of Obama comfortably sitting on a couch spending quality time with his daughters and take the time to fully comprehend the contrast between these situations. All of the atrocities you will see in that documentary are caused by that criminal who somehow received the Nobel Peace Prize, and who apparently also proudly likes to point out that he’s “good at killing people.”
I seem to be joking but what’s going on in the world today does not make me laugh at all. It doesn’t make me laugh because without any doubt, the leaders of our Western countries are taking the people for imbeciles with the help and support of the media which are nothing more today than an organ of propaganda of the ruling powers.
Flaunting and exposing this regime is a duty and makes me proud. And honestly, I apologize for my low class speech, but I fuck you all, the so called do gooders, both left and right wingers and from the center who are today licking the boots of our corrupted powers and who will be pleased to ridicule me. I fuck you all, leaders who are playing with your bombs as kids do in a playground! I fuck you, you who pretend to be democrats, while you are nothing more than low class criminals.
Barack Obama is indeed nothing more than a low class criminal playing with his drones like kids do in a playground. He’s a terrorist. And it’s not only Obama but all of the corporate and banking scumbags behind him who are making huge profits off of the suffering of millions of people around the world. Like Bush, Obama is just another puppet carrying out the dirty work for the elite who are in control, as I wrote about from the very beginning shortly after Obama got elected in 2008:
Do you think George Bush was really taking the decisions for the last 8 years? If you think so, you have a lot of research ahead of you. George Bush has been nothing more than a puppet. The real decisions are being made by powerful people who remain in the background, to forward their own agenda. An agenda that is in their own interests, not yours. Some call them the hidden government or the secret government, the illuminati, some call them the military industrial complex, and many other names, but they’re the same people behind Bush, the same people behind the attacks on 9/11 and the same people behind the Kennedy assassination.
Now Obama is their new puppet, and he’ll be continuing everything Bush has been doing. Don’t mind what he has been saying during his campaign. Talk is cheap. To win the election, it’s neccessary to give people hope and to tell them what they want to hear. His actual actions in the coming years are going to show you where he really stands. Obama wouldn’t even be a candidate and have so much support from corporations and especially the corporate media if they didn’t know beforehand that he would be protecting and supporting their interests, just like Bush has been doing the last 8 years. Interests of a small but powerful group of people. Remember, today the mere fact that a person is allowed to be running for president in the USA and has the approval of the corporate media and widely backed by corporations, means that he’s one of them. This has been the giveaway of the whole plot but few noticed.
It’s almost too crazy to believe that all of the above is going on and that this is actually allowed to go on by the majority of the global population. Not a single day in my life goes by where I don’t wonder in what kind of a fucking hell-hole I’m living in; surrounded by savages in a world ruled by savages.
It seems that Bill Gates doesn’t fully understand what our basic needs are as human beings. As I wrote in my post on the subject, the ability to connect and communicate with one another is one of the most important of our natural needs. Gates apparently just can’t bring himself to realize what kind of impact connectivity to the Internet will have on the improvement of people’s lives. From here:
Gates described initiatives by Facebook and Google to position online connectivity as a humanitarian concern as ‘a joke’
While Gates, 58, said technology is ‘amazing’, he doesn’t believe it is on the ‘first five rungs’ of basic human needs.
‘I certainly love the IT thing,’ Gates told The Financial Times. ‘But when we want to improve lives, you’ve got to deal with more basic things like child survival, child nutrition.’
‘PCs are not, in the hierarchy of human needs, in the first five rungs,’ he added.
Gates’ comments come just a few months after Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook wants to get more of the world’s more than seven billion people online through a partnership with some of the world’s largest mobile technology companies.
Known as Internet.org, the initiative was launched in August and also includes South Korean electronics giant Samsung, Finnish handset maker Nokia and wireless chip maker Qualcomm.
